The England youth international put pen to paper over a contract extension at Emirates Stadium before being shipped out to the League Two side

Arsenal have confirmed that promising forward Kaylen Hinds has signed a new contract with the club.

The Gunners have also revealed that Hinds will spend the rest of the season on loan at League Two side Stevenage.

‘Allegri could leave for Arsenal’

Hinds, 18, has come through the club’s Hale End academy and is an England youth international.

The young striker has scored once in three appearances for the club’s under-23 side, while he scored six times for the under-21 team in 2015-16.

And Hinds becomes the third Arsenal youngster to leave the club on a temporary deal in the last 24 hours.

Ismael Bennacer has left for Ligue 2 side Tours, who boast Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny as former players, while Gedion Zelalem has joined VVV Venlo.

Thanks for all the messages. Delighted to have signed on loan for @StevenageFC.

Arsenal under-23 coach Steve Gatting believes Hinds’s best position is as a No.10, telling the club’s official website: “He’s pretty powerful, strong, scores goals and he gets into the box.

“He’s got a good understanding of a number 10’s role.”
